Gintengai Arcade

Gintengai Arcade is a covered shopping street that runs through the center of Matsuyama with a rather 1970s look and feel. It's home to a variety of modern and traditional shops, and tiny boutiques with a focus on fashion. There are also a number of coffee shops, and restaurants off side streets.


Matsuyama has a wide range of shopping areas including covered arcades, malls, and department stores. The two arcades in central Matsuyama and in Dogo serve as the arteries to a much larger area of shops and restaurants.
